About the Author

Monica Ali was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and grew up in England. She was named one of the 20 best young British novelists under 40 by Granta. She is the author of four previous novels, including Untold Story and Brick Lane, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the Guardian Book Prize, nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and was named a winner of the 2003 Discover Award for Fiction and a New York Times Editors' Choice Book that same year. She lives in London with her husband and two children.


Praise for Love Marriage

"Quick footed and absorbing... The playful clash of cultures evolves into a subtle exploration of the ways in which both immigrant and nonimmigrant families have shaped their children, transmitting unexplored trauma across generations."
--The New Yorker

"Cultural clashes, political satire, Oedipal conflicts, elegant prose--they're all here in this romp of a book."
--Hamilton Cain, Oprah Daily

"Ali successfully skewers everyone--white feminists, children of immigrants, overconfident male doctors...funny and satisfying."
--Jenny Singer, Glamour

"An absorbing and meaty exploration of love, family and culture..."
--Carole V. Bell, NPR

"Such lively characters, they practically waltz off the page to hand readers save-the-date cards... I came to care deeply about this flawed pair, whose destiny Ali unfurls with obvious glee and a touch of poetry."
--Elisabeth Egan, The New York Times Book Review
